Come give a little love to America's North Coast! Diverse and humming with the energy of blue collar determination, Cleveland, Ohio has enjoyed quite the revitalization over the past few years. Whether you're into sports, art, food, film, theater, or more, the CLE has a little bit of everything. Enjoy all the great music the Rock and Roll Capital of the World has to offer in concert halls and bars across the city and, of course, check out some of these great spots to play shuffleboard!
2529 W 10th St
Cleveland, OH 44113
This bar in Tremont has been around for nearly 100 years. So long, in fact, that their shuffleboard table is often called "old-timey." (To be fair, it's from the 1940s!) Just goes to show that some things are ageless. In the family for four generations, Hotz's Café has more secrets in its walls can anyone can remember. Legends like Lou Gherig, Rocky Colavito, Ty Cobb, and Babe Ruth used to drop in for a pint after playing baseball games, mixing among the soot-covered factory workers to toast a shot and a wash. The original mahogany bar and bottle cap stools keep the magic alive, so go turn that magic into shuffleboard luck.
5801 Detroit Ave
Cleveland, OH 44102
There are two Happy Dogs, but only one of them is on Detroit Ave. Pick that one for some shuffling good times. A neighborhood bar doesn't get any more authentic than this - specialty hot dogs, more than 75 beers, and a live music profile that ranges from rock to punk to polka. The bar regularly collaborates with writers, academics, scientists, and even the Cleveland Orchestra to bring a one-of-a-kind experience to the humble pub-goer. You might learn all the secrets of the universe between your shuffleboard turns!
The Corner Alley
402 Euclid Ave
Cleveland, OH 44114
There are two locations, but you'll want The Corner Alley Downtown in the East Fourth Neighborhood. Renovated in 2015, Downtown offers you a 16-lane bowling alley, HDTVs featuring the hottest live sporting events (including the NFL Sunday Ticket) two dozen beers on draft, a ton of bourbon options, and a casual American restaurant to boot. Pizza, salads, nachos, sliders, sandwiches, and several vegetarian options offer a little something for all your taste buds. Private rooms for parties, an open-air bar, and open patio space make this a great destination for a night of fun. Arcade games tie it all together, plus shuffleboard, fooseball, and air hockey.
Punch Bowl Social
1086 W 11th St
Cleveland, OH 44113
Go out right tonight and head to Punch Bowl Social. The place "where scratch kitchen meets crafted brews" is made all the better by arcade and table games, like shuffleboard. Enjoy elevated pub food for breakfast, lunch, and brunch all at the same time, or drop in for dinner. Get sticky with the monkey bread French toast, or nibble on some black-eyed pea hummus. Cleverly crafted alcoholic punches like "You Must Bring Us A Shrubbery" are sure to get you laughing and feeling good. Or try an adult milkshake while you shuffle!
Dave and Buster's
25735 1st Street
